Semawang area is a quiet version of Kuta that offers a decent selection of accommodation options
Semawang Beach, the coastal strip to the south of Sanur from the Bali Hyatt to Hotel Sanur Beach.
This part of the beach is quiet and you will see the brightly colored jukung (local fishing boats)
Sanur has a reef making it ideal for surfers and also people with young kids inside the reef. Sanur does not get a strong beach break like Kuta / Seminyak. Swimming is only possible at high tide as low tide exposes the reef. Swimming outside the reef is not recommended.
By glass bottom boat, you can see very beautiful under water panorama around Sanur and Turtle island, many corals and fishes.
One of the most pleasant aspects of Sanur is its large expanse of beach front. A footpath covers the entire 5kms allowing visitors to stroll along and explore, stopping when they feel like it for a drink or snack at a beach side restaurant. The sand quality is good in Sanur, yellowish in color and fairly clean.
In addition, there are souvenir shops for you to explore if you are looking for presents, souvenirs local handicrafts.
You can move around Semawang on foot while biking around Sanur is also fun.
You can find almost every watersport imaginable here like diving and snorkeling, most of the facilities are found right on the beach in front of the Semawang Beach Hotel.
